A-list actress Zoe Saldana says Donald Trump won the election, thanks, in part, to “arrogant” celebrities whose personal insults created sympathy for the Republican candidate and galvanized his supporters.
“We got cocky and became arrogant and we also became bullies,” the Oscar-winner told AFP.
Saldana, the face of multiple blockbuster film franchises–Star Trek, Avatar, and Guardians of the Galazy–says celebrities demonizing Trump only emboldened the voters who believed in him.
“We were trying to single out a man for all these things he was doing wrong … and that created empathy in a big group of people in America that felt bad for him and that are believing in his promises,” she said.
While she did not support Trump’s candidacy, Saldana says, “I’m learning from (Trump’s victory) with a lot of humility.”
She said she is hopeful that America under Trump will not become the racially segregated society that it once was.
Newsflash Zoe Saldana; America is more racially divided since the 60’s and 70’s! And you can thank our current wanna-be civil rights leaders, Democrats and President Obama for that!
Last week, actress Nicole Kidman said, “[Trump is] now elected and we, as a country, need to support whoever is the president.”
